Figure I might as well put one of these together. Seems things change on the car on an almost monthly basis so should probably have a place to keep track of everything. I do not know how much I have spent at this point and honestly don't really care. The car is great on-road or on a race track and it's distant future will likely see it turned into a full race car at some point.

Changed up the spoiler. Wanted something a bit more aggressive.

Longer wheel studs in the front to make up for the 5mm spacers I am running:



And some POV canyon carving action at medium pace.

How are you liking the RT660? Did you try the RE71s as a comparison in the past?
Pretty good so far, haven't pushed the car much as I want to avoid breaking something before my track day next weekend. I have not run the Bridgestone's.

Do you have part numbers or know of a site that sells a package for the Veloster N Brake Cooling Air Diverters? I tried looking on a Hyundai OEM parts site for those and had no luck.

They won't bolt on. You'll have to MacGyver it. I used a combination of double sided tape and zip ties. I can get a pic over the weekend. Granted you can drill holes in the control arms and bolt them on but I don't have that option due to my control arms being boxed in.

Hey man! Saw you had the R-spec ss before and you changed it to the B&M? Any problems with the R-spec? I got mine a couple weeks ago but haven't had time to install it. I also got the Sxth bushings so I guess I'll do it when those come in.

Haven't changed it. Signature was outdated.

More stuff coming! I have 2 weeks off for the holidays and the following will be installed during that time:
  • Install LED license plate lights
  • Install OSRAM Cool Blue headlight bulbs
  • Install Road Runs lip kit (front/sides)
  • Install Whiteline roll correction kit
  • Install Whiteline rear toe arms
  • Install Uniq Performance subframe collars
  • Install SXTH hot pipe
  • Install custom valve cover (if it's finished?)

Also going to clean the radiator and intercooler while I have the front bumper off to install the headlight bulbs. And with the wheels off the suspension install, might take some simple green to everything I can reach and do a nice cleaning.

Nice build! What are your top 3 favorite additions to the car? Mine is all stock currently but it would be nice to have a little more power. I’m in CA though and still under warranty so I’m not sure what would be worthwhile at this point.

Top 3 would be:
  1. Veloster R-Spec shifter and all solid bushings
  2. SXTH ECU Tune
  3. Reinforced lower control arms

Would you think that the upgraded Shifter Base and Cable Bushings from SXTH be worth it also for a daily?
